The TikTok community loves a good trend, and there are new ones going viral just about every week as people engage with and recreate the content they see pop up on their For You Page.

The latest trend that’s confusing users has been dubbed the ‘Strawberry Question’ by many. In these videos, someone will ask their partner a series of questions about a strawberry field, such as whether they’d be willing to take a strawberry from the field even if they were hungry and there was a fence, and how many they would take.

According to the trend, the answers to these questions reveal whether or not their partner is likely to cheat on them. If someone answers no to all the questions it means they ‘passed,’ but if they answered yes to some or all of them then it means they have ‘failed.’
